We hope you will enjoy this gift and that it will bring you lots of inspiration and great musical ideas. We very much look forward to seeing you again in 2012.
This Kit we are giving away for free is based on a composition named "Arabian Groove" which can be found in the full version of Symphonic Series Vol 2: Arabian Adventures 1. It's got a rich Western orchestral sound playing typical Arabic melodic lines. No chords are included as authentic Arabic music is based on melody and rhythm rather than on harmony.
Two other Kits in this episode of our Symphonic Series project do have chords, though "Arabian Groove" is based on a solid and grooving bass line played by the double basses, the cellos and the bassoons at 99 BPM, which is great for mixing with more urban styles. The percussion loops add an authentic Eastern flavour and will mingle perfectly with your personal choice of drum samples.
Building great grooves will be easy. Please note that you have complete musical freedom and our suggestion that these loops are great for Urban music shouldn't withhold you from choosing your own direction. It's great for lots of styles except for Tangos and Viennese Waltzes!
The included MIDI files are extremely useful when you want to have full control over your masterpiece. Just import the fragments you want to use for additional sounds into your DAW's song project, it's all dead easy.
The key in which the music is played is E Double Harmonic: E, F, G, A, B, C, D-sharp. If you want to add your own melodic lines you only need to use these notes to avoid tonal clashes. A lot of the instruments one can find in a symphony orchestra are included in this Kit, alongside some authentic Arabian instruments and percussion. All loops and phrases feature "solo" performances for maximum authenticity.
About using the OMF files:
OMF format (Open Media Format) allows you to import a complete arrangement of audio loops into virtually any sequencer. Once loaded, you will see all parts on screen exactly as originally seen when exported, with chunks of audio data on separate tracks, all named by instrument. This format will allow you complete flexibility when re-mixing the arrangements.
Dry loops were used when building the OMF files so feel free to add your own reverb and/or favourite FX to a phrase, a loop or a fully orchestrated fragment. All clips (phrases, loops) carry the same name as the dry and wet loops as well as the MIDI loops which you will find in the folder structure.
By muting or soloing tracks while looping a specific section, you will soon find the exact combination of instruments you want to use for your project. Keep in mind that it might be best to use the same file-naming system when exporting your favourite sections as you may want to add or change things at a later point in your creative proces. Please note, the OMF files sum up all volumes of the individual tracks while all faders are set to 0 db. Therefore, please set the master fader to around -7 db to avoid clipping and take it from there.
List of Sequencers with OMF Import:
Here is a list of all sequencers that will import the full arrangements of these kits in audio format. When you import these arrangements you will be able to see them in your sequencer as if you had recorded them yourself:
